Who says Hmong refugees aren’t assimilating? They know what to do when middle school students play a bonehead prank, substituting a jar of glue for mayonnaise in the school cafeteria. Claim racial bias and sue!
In a lawsuit filed in Marathon County Circuit Court, parents of the six Hmong children who ate the glue after it was put on sandwiches seek punitive damages for physical and emotional injuries.
. . . Last spring, police and school officials investigated the incident and concluded it had nothing to do with race. The school suspended two white students and one minority student for three days, and police cited the three for disorderly conduct.
The lawsuit, filed Dec. 29, alleges the defendants put the glue on the food table to target Hmong children in the prank. The suit accuses the school district of negligently failing to supervise students and of allowing racial discrimination to occur.
Clearly, the school should ban mayonnaise.
